Re: TNG S5: Ensign Ro

@paul

It's no more strange than seeing TNG's characters as 2-D

Re: TNG S5: Ensign Ro

The reason I always liked TNG so much more than DS9 was the three dimensional characters on TNG as compared to the all-too-often 2 dimensional cardboard cutout characters on DS9.

Re: TNG S5: I, Borg

All I can say is it's a good thing there wasn't an agent from Section 31 on board the Enterprise. There's a terrible disconnect between Picard's moral choice to NOT use Hugh, a Borg who becomes a sympathetic character over the course of a few days, as an instrument of genocide, and Section 31 (and by extention the Federation) who had no compuction about infecting Odo, a Bajoran citizen and trusted officer on DS9.

What makes these different choices all the more tragic is that when Odo contronted Sisko with the Federation sanctioning of genocide, Sisko becomes an apologist for their actions. I don't see Picard making that choice.

Nick wrote: "The problem I have with these terminator type chicks is that they are so unrealistic. I have never met a female human who in any way acted like this outside of maury povich."

Perhaps the fact that Ro isn't human is what makes her character believable. Not every race encountered in Star Trek has to act exactly like 21st Century humans.

And I couldn't agree more about the refreshing addition of conflict. The reason I always liked DS9 so much more than TNG was the three dimensional characters on DS9 as compared to the all-too-often 2 dimensional cardboard cutout characters on TNG.

Nick thinks 'badass chicks' are not believable because he doesn't see them in real life. Well, I don't believe the crew of the Enterprise never have interpersonal conflict being trapped on a starship together 24/7.

I do agree that Michelle Forbes is not my favorite. So glad she passed on DS9 and allowed Nana Visitor to breathe life into Kira. What a gift.
